This Yellow building is situated in Boris Kidric Street. I don't know how old it is but I was fascinated by architecture and it beauty. That style of main doors on house we call "ainfort" doors. It's typical for old houses built in XIX century. Mostly rich and noble families had that type of doors on their houses. Above the doors sometimes you can see name of that family and year when the building was built.
The building has extreme architectonic value and represents an unusual mixture of baroque, romance and neoclassical architecture. The castle consists of two circular and two conical towers, and the biggest one that dominates.
